2019 NFL Mock Draft: Giants trade pick acquired in Odell Beckham trade for Josh Rosen, Titans go QB
After a crazy week for the Giants, they trade for Rosen and continue to build their offensive line in this two-round mock
I'm going to venture a guess: it's been a hard week as a Giants fan.
So, to brighten the spirits of the G-Men faithful, I've swung a trade outside of this two-round mock draft.
The Giants send the No. 17 overall pick -- acquired in the Odell Beckham Jr. trade -- to the Cardinals for Josh Rosen.
Many fans in New York wouldn't be overjoyed with Rosen after the rookie season he had, but at least he'd represent a vision at the quarterback position beyond Eli Manning, and the former UCLA star is unquestionably talented.
Let's get to the picks.
|Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma |
Until a development occurs that changes what has been the consensus since the combine, I'll keep Murray at 1.
|Nick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State |
Bosa would add a perfect complementary edge presence next to the newly acquired Dee Ford .
|Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky |
The Jets wanted to sign Anthony Barr to play him on the edge. With him returning to Minnesota, Gang Green still has a big need at defensive end.
|Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama |
Even with Maurice Hurst and P.J. Hall at defensive tackle, the Raiders can't pass on someone as talented as Williams.
|Devin White, LB, LSU |
With Kwon Alexander gone, the Buccaneers have to get more athletic in their linebacker group. With White, they get a supremely gifted athlete.
|Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida |
Taylor seems like the precise type of offensive tackle Dave Gettleman would draft this high to fortify the blocking for Eli and Saquon.
|Rashan Gary, EDGE, Michigan |
It only took one season for the Jaguars once unbelievably loaded defensive line to be dismantled to a certain degree. Gary replaces Dante Fowler and can rush from the inside on occasion.
|Greedy Williams, CB, LSU |
Williams is a long, athletic cornerback who'd formulate an awesome trio with Darius Slay and new nickel corner Justin Coleman in Detroit.
|Ed Oliver, DT, Houston |
Oliver is an instant replacement for the now retired Kyle Williams as a play-making one-gapper on the inside.
|Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State |
Haskins is very talented but is probably in need of a redshirt year, and he'd get that behind Joe Flacco in Denver.
|Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State |
Dillard is an instant starter at right tackle who'd keep Andy Dalton clean. He could move to left tackle if and when the team moves on from Cordy Glenn.
|T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa |
Hockenson would be an awesome seam-stretcher from the start in Green Bay and his blocking chops would help to open holes for Aaron Jones .
|Garrett Bradbury, C, NC State |
The Dolphins seem to be content with not winning many games in 2019 to ensure they get a top quarterback in 2020. Bradbury can be a high-end center with a year to build strength.
|Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama |
The Falcons released Ryan Schraeder, so they have a hole at right tackle. The Falcons see a lot of Jake Matthews in Williams.
|Noah Fant, TE, Washington |
Fant's tremendous yards-after-the-catch skills will immediately translate to Jay Gruden's West Coast offense.
|D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss |
The Panthers lost Devin Funchess in free agency and are pumped to land Metcalf here, as he's a rare size/speed specimen who'll accentuate Cam Newton's big arm.
|Dalton Risner, OL, Kansas State |
After trading Rosen, the Cardinals look to build the line in front of Murray. Risner can play any spot up front.
|Chris Lindstrom |
This may seem early, but Lindstrom is a highly athletic guard with a nasty demeanor.
|Drew Lock, QB, Titans |
Marcus Mariota is playing on his fifth-year option and was drafted by the previous regime. Lock can be the quarterback in waiting in Nashville.
|Devin Bush, LB, Michigan |
Bush is a twitchy, super-charged linebacker, exactly the type of player the Steelers need at that position.
|Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa State |
Instead of moving down to acquire more picks, the Seahawks stay put and get Russell Wilson a tall receiver with an enormous catch radius.
|A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss |
The Ravens want to run the football and play stingy defense. But they have to get Lamar Jackson legit receiver talent. Brown is very NFL-ready.
|Yodny Cajuste, OT, West Virginia |
The Texans aren't worried if many think this is too early for Cajuste. They love his size, length, noticeable power and vast experience as a pass protector.
|Montez Sweat, EDGE, Mississippi State |
Mike Mayock is ecstatic to be able to draft Sweat, an elite athlete with surprising bend for his stature and the ability to convert speed to power.
|Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia |
As a rookie, Baker can step in as a full-time player in a needy Eagles secondary.
|Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State |
Burns would give the Colts some serious juice on the edge of their defensive line.
|Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama |
I can totally see Jon Gruden wanting a bell cow running back of his own, and he gets that by drafting Jacobs here.
|Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson |
Wilkins is the logical fit between Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram in Los Angeles. He can do anything you ask of him on the line.
|Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson |
With Dee Ford and Justin Houston no longer with the team, GM Brett Veach re-invests in the outside pass rush with Ferrell, a long, powerful, ascending prospect.
|Cody Ford, OL, Oklahoma |
Ford is a perfect pick for the Packers because he could start at guard then move to right tackle when the team moves on from Bryan Bulaga.
|Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson |
With Ndamukong Suh unsigned, the Rams add more serious talent to their defensive line with Lawrence.
|Jerry Tillery, DT, Notre Dame |
Tillery is a unique interior defensive lineman because he's so tall, but he has a polished repertoire of pass-rushing moves and is a plus athlete.
|Jachai Polite, EDGE, Florida |
A strange combine drops Polite out of the first round but the Cardinals are happy to pick him here to learn under Terrell Suggs for a season.
|Byron Murphy, CB, Washington |
The Colts stay defense after landing Burns in Round 1 and give the zone-heavy secondary a springy, opportunistic corner in Murphy.
|Lonnie Johnson, CB, Kentucky |
The Raiders still need young talent in their secondary. With Johnson they get a cornerback who can match up against bigger receivers on the outside.
|N'Keal Harry, WR, Arizona State |
Love this prospect-team pairing, as it gives Jimmy Garappolo a chain-mover who can thrive in the red zone.
|Kelvin Harmon, WR, NC State |
The Giants have to add a legitimate outside receiver to their roster. Harmon can be that possession target from Day 1.
|Jace Sternberger, TE, Texas A&M |
May be a touch early for Sternberger. The Jaguars don't care. They want to get Nick Foles a reliable over-the-middle target.
|Joejuan Williams, CB, Vanderbilt |
At nearly 6-4 with long arms, Williams would bring a much-needed size element to Tampa's secondary.
|JJ Arcega-Whiteside, WR, Stanford |
Even with the additions of John Brown and Cole Beasley, the Bills could use another receiver. Arcega-Whiteside can start as a jump-ball/red-zone target for Josh Allen in his debut season before becoming more of a full-time player in his second season.
|Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss |
How about this: Garett Bolles to guard and Little to left tackle. The Broncos signed Ju'Wuan James in free agency yet need to get sturdier up front.
|Blake Cashman, LB, Minnesota |
Even with Preston Brown back in the mix, the Bengals must add athleticism to their linebacker group. They do that with Cashman.
|Juan Thornhill, S, Virginia |
The Lions are pumped to get Thornhill here. He's a dynamic playmaker thanks to explosive athletic traits.
|Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma |
Perfect landing spot for Brown, and he wouldn't be relied upon as a No. 1 right away, with Davante Adams clearly in that role.
|Jeffery Simmons, DT, Mississippi State |
Insane value for the Falcons with Simmons, who's nursing a torn knee ligament. When healthy, he's a top 10 player in this class.
|Daniel Jones, QB, Duke |
Jay Gruden can't go into what looks like a season on the hot seat with the current stable of quarterbacks he has. Jones represents the future of his West Coast offense.
|Zach Allen, EDGE/DL, Boston College |
The Panthers need to bring in a talented edge presence. Allen can beat offensive tackles with power and great bend relative to his size then kick inside and win as a pass rusher against guards thanks to hand work and quickness.
|Christian Miller, EDGE, Alabama |
Another team with a need on the outside of its pass rusher, the Dolphins pick the fast-rising Miller, who demonstrated major explosiveness at the combine and has extremely long arms he uses well.
|Justin Layne, CB, Michigan State |
The Browns roster is now pretty loaded. It could use another corner opposite Denzel Ward. Layne is a long, athletic, feisty defender.
|Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina |
With the Vikings not seeing great value on the offense line here, they add another yards-after-the-catch monster in Samuel.
|Julian Love, CB, Notre Dame |
The Titans have been active in free agency and still need some cornerback reinforcement. Love is an ultra-disruptive corner who can line up anywhere and thrive.
|Dre'Mont Jones, DT, Ohio State |
Edge could be an option here. Instead, the Steelers add another pass-rush specialist on the defensive interior.
|Deionte Thompson, S, Alabama |
The Eagles go back-to-back in the secondary, with the idea that Thompson ultimately takes over Malcolm Jenkins' versatile role.
|Erik McCoy, C, Texas A&M |
With this pick, the Texans feel they got their Week 1 starting center in the back end of the second round. McCoy is a battler with good athleticism.
|Dillon Mitchell, WR, Oregon |
After consecutive offensive line selections, the Texans go receiver to give DeAndre Hopkins another running mate. Mitchell is a well-rounded, dynamic pass catcher.
|Andy Isabella, WR, UMass |
Isabella is available late in Round 1, and Bill Belichick just can't resist.
|Terrill Hanks, LB, New Mexico State |
With Jordan Hicks gone, Philadelphia lacks some young and springiness in its linebacker group. Hanks brings both.
|Khalen Saunders, DT, Western Illinois |
Saunders brings major one-gapping talent on the inside to Dallas' defense, exactly what it needs.
|Emanuel Hall, WR, Missouri |
Even with the presence of T.Y. Hilton and newcomer Devin Funchess, I don't think it'd be the worst idea for the Colts to continue to round out their receiver room.
|Kaleb McGary, OT, Washington |
This is a pick mostly made for 2020, but McGary can start at right tackle to begin his career.
|Lamont Gaillard, C, Georgia |
Gaillard is a powerful, leverage monster who dominates in the run game and can sit down and anchor as a pass protector.
|Irv Smith Jr., TE, Alabama |
Smith Jr. could be a major contributor right away in the Saints offense. He's awesome after the catch.
|Chase Winovich, EDGE, Michigan |
The Chiefs see some Dee Ford in Winovich, a quick, bendy edge rusher who plays with an always humming motor.
|Taylor Rapp, S, Washington |
Rapp is a multi-faceted defender capable of making big plays at each level of the field. He'd fit right in with the Patriots.
